Tel Aviv-Jaffa has opened its gates to visual art lovers as part of the "Love Art. Create Art" event, in an effort to prove that culture still has its place among the parking issues, traffic jams, infrastructure, and high-rise construction in the city.

Love Art. Create Art is the opening shot in Tel Aviv-Jaffa's exhibition season. In honor of its ninth celebration, 75 galleries, exhibition spaces and museums (including the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Nachum Gutman Museum and the Rubin Museum) will extend their opening hours into the small hours of the night while offering free admissions. In addition, 250 artists will open their studios to the public and allow visitors to enjoy their creations.

This time around, the activities won't be limited to closed spaces, and will fan out into the city streets. From 7 pm on Thursday new works of art that include sound as their main component will be on display in public, under the title Hearing Art. This will allow those who wish to wander among the galleries and museums to gain impressions from vocal works of art in the so called open spaces of Tel Aviv's cement enclosed parks and avenues.
No Title, Roni Sagi.

The Ganei Yehoshua Park, Tel Aviv's port and the Yarkon River are among the venues where special exhibitions will be held in honor of the celebrations.
